Tackling Long-Term Global Energy Problems: The Contribution of Social Science


This book makes a case for a multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach to energy research-one that brings more of the social sciences to bear. Featuring eight studies from across the spectrum of the social sciences, each applying multiple disciplines to one or more energy-related problems, the book demonstrates the strong analytical and policy-making potential of such a broadened perspective. Case studies include: energy transitions of households in developing countries, the `curse of oil’, politics and visions for renewables, economics and ethics in emissions trading, and carbon capture and storage.
